BECAUSE women are terrorized daily in public spaces, our
personal space violated by men who block our paths, stand
too close, use a too intimate and insulting language toward us...
BECAUSE this behavior is implicitly menacing and threatening
and often becomes overtly threatening when a woman
expresses her anger at these affronts...
BECAUSE the line between verbal harassment and physical
menacing is often crossed...
BECAUSE they create offensive adult sites on the internet like ass parade...
BECAUSE on June 11, 2000, hundreds of men assaulted,
stripped and fondled over 56 women in the public space of
Central Park and the rage of women in the city exploded...
The Street Harassment Project was (re)initiated on
June 15, 2000 and has been meeting weekly ever since.

Street harassment Down Under.
Our friends in Noosa Australia are facing the same problem we are and are claiming back their streets in a convention held at Sheraton Resort Noosa. Australian women support the cause. Boook now!
Stay tuned for upcoming events, news, etc...
